How to disable "Use printer offline"

By rskelton ·
When a network printer is unavailable, Win98 automatically sets it to "Use printer offline". That causes me many support calls from users on my network that don't know why they can't print and I have to walk them through unchecking this setting. Does anyone know of a way to disable this "feature"?

Look in the registry under local machine - software - microsoft - windows - curent version from there start poking around until you find a value of set printer offline or something similar and change it.
Once you find the value you can easily deploy it by exporting that value to a .reg and double clicking it on each machine that will import it.

Been there - tried that-found nothing. I found nothing that appeared to control this behavior.

The next time it happens, beat the user with a baseball bat.
